CEDAR Full time PhD scholarships 2017
The Centre for Educational Development Appraisal and Research (CEDAR) at the University of Warwick runs a small PhD programme in Education and Psychology. For October 2017, we have three fully-funded PhD scholarships available in partnership with a number of external organisations.
All three studentships are for full-time study and open only to applicants who meet the University of Warwick’s criteria for home/EU PhD fees. Each studentship covers PhD study fees and an annual stipend at the level recommended by the Economic and Social Research Council for a maintenance grant (£14,553 for 2017/18). Additional funding support is also available for research expenses and/or conference attendance in connection with the PhD research projects.
The studentships are available for three years each only. Thus, applicants should already have completed (or almost completed) a relevant research-intensive masters degree or have at least the equivalent level of research experience. Applicants’ first degrees are expected to be of an upper second class honours level as a minimum, and must be in a relevant discipline – Psychology, Education/Special Education or a closely related area.
All three students will be supervised by Associate Professor Vaso Totsika and Professor Richard Hastings, with involvement of staff from our partner organisations.
To apply for one or more of these studentships, please submit a single document via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline of 4pm UK time on Thursday 15 June. The single document attachment (in Word or pdf format) should contain the following:
- A cover letter explaining your skills and interests relevant to the PhD project(s) for which you wish to apply,
- A statement of your order of preference/interest in these PhD opportunities (you can apply for one, two, or all three of these opportunities),
- Your full academic CV, and
- The names and contact details of two academic referees who can comment on your suitability for PhD study and can be contacted prior to the interviews(normally, referees will be University-based academics who have supervised a research project you have conducted as a student or who have employed you as a researcher).
Applications missing any of these required details may not be considered for short-listing.
